Delete the attic gable wall and put some p-solids in to suit.

Exactly. And if you have a hard time removing the attic wall then make it invisible or turn off auto attic walls and delete it. P-solids would make it easy. Fairly easy carport. I've done this so many times for carports and porches.

If the cross angle supports are separate from the vertical members then you should be able to select them in plan view and move them. These items are probably at the attic level or a floor up. Probably even be able to do a point to point move.

      I have run across a problem and I am having trouble figuring out the solution with energy heels. On the front porch I need a 43" energy heel, the back portion of the house I need a 18" energy heel and then the gables I need a 6'' energy heel. I manually generated the roof but was wondering the ways to determine the energy heels. Is the only way to solve this is by placing roof trusses and measuring from there? To go along with that question, I am wondering if I raise my roof planes through the Z delta (in the transform/replicate dbx) is that the same as what the energy heel would be if I were to place trusses and measure? Thanks.

      Working on the plan for this existing house and they have a doorway connecting one catwalk to another but the roof pitch is steep and running 2 different directions. I've attached 2 pictures of what I need the area to actually look like in my plan.

      I figured this question has been addressed many times but I couldn't find it in the forum,
      I'm running into a frequent issue when creating box eaves on dormers and custom roof planes. They disappear only when the ridge is connected with an adjacent roof.
      The box eaves will reappear if I separate the roof ridge line, (as shown in my attached photos),or move my roof base line Away from the wall by the desired eave distance, or when I drag the plane inside the outer wall perimeter.
      If anyone else has experienced the same issue or is aware of a practical work around, I am all ears.

      I appreciate your time for reviewing this post.
